This is our unique version of an ancient style. A style as old as the ocean trade routes of the last centuries Great Ships. Not as old as the equator they had to cross twice enroute, nor as old as the 10,000 or so miles of Di-Hydrogen Oxide and Sodium upon which they sailed, but older than the Circulithium-4 Lentloid that binds the Lupulin Quartnate onto your taste buds. Weird. Think about it. Now stop. OK, go again, now stop. Think again, and stop. But we digress. Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts, this redolent ale will likely float your boat, whatever planet youíre on.

Floral piney, tea nose. Very lovely honey amber, with particles in suspension. Small whitish head dalmost completely disappears, yet leaves nice lacing. Earthy, fainttly caramel malts, woody, medium body, great mouthfeel, more earthen dusty hops, with a resinous finish. A darn nice brew I must say. Well balanced I must say.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Dark amber body with off white frothy head. Glass had lots of lacing though out the beer. Had a citrus aroma and had a good alcohol kick at the end like most IPAís Iíve had do. Good beer, liked it,

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Pale golden color with yellow accents. Fruity hop aroma, not overly resinous. Smooth mouthfeel with medium body, nice maltiness balanced by very floral and citrusy hop flavor. Residual resin and spiciness sometimes evident in hop-dominant beers is not present. Excellent example of an American IPA. Not as full flavored as I tend to enjoy, but very drinkable.

Tejas (909) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Nice fluffy creamy head. Some citrus mixed with flowery hops but not over the top on the hops. More like a pale ale than an IPA. A bit of malty flavor too. Some spice is revealed as it warms. Good but there are others on the shelf Iíd reach for first. One & done.

I really like this IPA. Nice hop flavor...nothing overboard. Nice white head and crisp flavor.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Not an IPA I would buy. Signature off, Lagunitas nose. Boring and oxidized finish very bland pale ale, not an IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2006 March 1, 2005: Just sampled a couple of these on tap at JFK Intíl while waiting to board a delayed flight. Overall, I found this IPA to be very tasty and satisfying -- a NICE effort!

Tried this again on tap at the Blue Tusk in Syracuse, NY -- excellent IPA!

12 oz. bottle on Nov. 15, 2006: This is a VERY tasty and well-balanced IPA. A bit more subdued (i.e., not over-the-top hoppy) like some of the other West Coast varieties, but this is definitely a winner.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 22, 2005
This beer poured an orange/brown w/ golden highlights w/ thin head and lacing. The aroma was citrusy and flowery w/ hints of pine. The flavor was all oranges and pine. The mouthfeel was light and carbonated.

IndianaRed (2738) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 20, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 Bottle Pours a clear amber with a very small off white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is mainly hops. Flowery and piney mostly. Flavor is a nice sharp bitter hopiness, with some full malty flavors imediatley following. Feel is not as thick or full bodied as my favs of the style. After taste is a quite bitter lingering burn. A bit much.
